User Reviews

A fairly good urban drama.

It's not a thriller, actually. Rather a social topic for a feature that takes place in the "poor" suburbs of Paris, where rebel youth usually explodes its wrath. Against police force, firemen and also doctors. A scientist, after visiting a patient, is badly wounded in his car with a Molotov Cocktail. He falls in coma. And that's where the story begins...

The doc's brother is a cop - played by Rochdy Zem - who wants to avenge his bro, even if he is not dead. The teenager who threw the Molotov cocktail finally saved the doctor before the car exploded. And of course the cop doesn't know that...

Besides, a man whose the wife died because the doc did not answered the emergency call because of the attack, wants to avenge his wife's death...

And, as you can guess, all these fates will eventually collide.

A well paced film, with fascinating characters played by great actors.

Only the very ending disappointed me. Not enough dark for me.

Not enough hopeless.
